Adopt a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine
Sure you might not be here on the front line...your heart going a mile a minute, not knowing what's coming next...But, what you all do with those cards, care packages, cookies is just as important... - from a Soldier's thank you
When you adopt you are committing to sending a card or letter each week, and a minimum of 1 or 2 care packages a month. This is one of the most important things that can be done to help bring home a healthy hero; it is so very important for each of them to know they are loved and supported, and your letters and care packages prove just that. The length of each adoption depends on the branch of service your soldier is in and a number of other factors, but generally averages between six (6) months to twelve (12) months. On occasion, they can be extended, but this is the average. To get started, click here.
Care packages do not have to be expensive: you can put together your own (we have a detailed list of the most-requested items for you--snacks, hygiene products, and games or magazines). We have also have some exciting themed care packages in the Angels Store (they are sold at cost and shipped directly to your soldier, complete with a personal note from you).
Important: This is a serious job for serious people. This is not a dating service, and we do not tolerate improper or inappropriate behavior. Our soldiers need us and the last thing we want to do is cause any additional stress in their lives or the lives of their families.
"I haven't been adopted yet but I'd like to thank you in advance, my Angel, where ever you are…One of my battle buddies gave me this website and told me to sign up because I have little family back home [and] receive very little letters and gifts. After surfing the website, I'm amazed at all the interesting and beautiful things you all do for soldiers. Thank you." – Christine
